Jeremiah Chechik's Among Stones photo exhibition will be held at SHOW Gallery November 17th through November 27th.
Closed November 28th - December 7th
Exhibition continues December 7th through December 21st, 2018.
The series of images, taken in Joshua Tree National Monument, celebrates light, color, and form in ways that breaks from naturalism by moving the pictorial into the abstract and moving naturalism into the realm of visual science fiction. We can choose to see the world as it is, but Chechik attempts to change it and to express it in a new light. These images explore the radicalism of this change, deeply informed by fiction and color field painting, presenting the world through alien eyes.
By looking at these unique earthly forms in new ways, the artist aims to construct a new appreciation for the world surrounding us and other worlds beyond.
